St. James of Jerusalem
a Mission of the Diocese of Long Island
IMPORTANT MESSAGE: based upon guidance from our bishop, the Right Reverend Lawrence Provenzano, who was guided by the Governor of NY and the NYS Department of Health, as part of the effort to halt the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), all in-person worship services and meetings at St. James are temporarily canceled.
To fill the need for community worship, Pastor Susan Bock has launched services via Zoom video conferencing platform. These include Morning Prayer during the week, and Sunday Service at 10:00 a.m. You can join with or without video, or even from your phone. The Sunday service is followed by an online Coffee Hour hosted by our member Wally Cavin.
Join this warm and welcoming group as much or as little as you like. All are welcome at St. James of Jerusalem! For information about how to join the St. James Zoom gatherings, please send an email to StJamesLBNY@gmail.com.
We look forward to seeing you!

Sunday worship is at 8 and 10 AM and is lively, lovely, and relevant to daily life. It follows a “liturgy” (a pattern) that includes bible readings, a sermon, and “Eucharist” (the Lord’s Supper, or Holy Communion) which is open to all, no matter your beliefs.
The later service includes congregational singing, which is supported by our small but mighty and talented choir, and our organist, David Horvath.
Choir practice is Sunday morning at 9:15, which you can be part of by just showing up!

First Sunday of each Month
at 11 - 11:30 a.m.
following the 10 a.m. service
All are invited: anyone seeking
· Healing of any illness - physical, emotional, or mental
· Recovery from addictions
· Help in caring for those with addictions
· Healing for a loved one
· Support for something you can’t even name
In the Church’s ancient tradition, as people are comfortable with it, we will pray for healing with the “Laying-on of Hands” and anointing oil.
Come for worship at 10:00, if you like, and stay for coffee, after the healing prayers. Take time in our lovely garden to rest your body and soul. Or just show up for prayers, and leave when you like.
